I went to the site. Sure looks like a cougar to me.

Fixed the link, it works now.
I just don't understand why this cat didn't run, maybe it was along range pic.

Tail looks a little short for a cougar, but I have never seen a cougar in the wild. The mystery lives on!

Pineman--I totally agree on the tail, and I have seen cougars in the wild and have even eaten cougar backstrap. Unless this is a tame cougar which had its tail "bobbed" (I assume that can be done), something is amiss. The body shape and color are right.

It's not so clear that the tail is short. There is something that could be blocking it on the left.

Here is another enhancement of the photo where I just adjusted the brightness and contrast to bring out the cat with less alteration of the colors.
